TimeRemaining ControlEvent

The installer uses the TimeRemaining event to publish the approximate time remaining, in seconds, for the current progress sequence. The time remaining can be displayed on a dialog box by a Text Control that subscribes to this ControlEvent. This event should be authored in the EventMapping table.

This ControlEvent can be handled by a user interface run at the basic UI, reduced UI, or full UI levels. For information about UI levels, see User Interface Levels.

Action on Subscribers


Typical Use

A Text Control on a modeless dialog box subscribes to this event through the EventMapping table and uses the TimeRemaining attribute to display the time remaining.

The same text control that subscribes to the TimeRemaining ControlEvent can also subscribe to the ScriptInProgress ControlEvent. In this case, as the preliminary ScriptInProgress message string, it is replaced by the "Time Remaining: xx minutes" string.
